UK students do not have to apply separately for the LSE Bursary.
We will use the financial information you provide to Student Finance when applying for your maintenance loan to determine your eligibility for and the value of your Bursary. Please make sure you consent to share the information you and your parent or guardian provide to Student Finance so that we are able to assess your eligibility.
See the section on applying for student loans for further information.
You will be notified before the start of your degree programme of your Bursary award, through a letter from Student Finance on behalf of LSE. The Bursary will then be paid into your bank account in three termly instalments. The first instalment will be paid in the October of the first term once you have registered.
Current LSE students
Current LSE students may also apply during the academic year and for your second or third year of study, even if you have not previously applied.
If you think you are entitled to an LSE Bursary but have not received your notification letter by the end of the Michaelmas Term you should contact the Financial Support Office. Please note that if you contact us after the end of Lent Term, we will not be able to award an LSE Bursary for the current the academic year.
